James Graham's political play This House will embark on a UK tour next year.

The play opened at the National Theatre in 2012 before runs in Chichester and at the Garrick Theatre. It is set in Westminster between 1974 and 1979 as the Labour government faced a vote of no confidence.

Jeremy Herrin's production received rave reviews when it opened in the Olivier, and the run at the Garrick was nominated for Best Revival at this year's Olivier Awards.

The tour will open in Leeds at the West Yorkshire Playhouse on 22 February 2018 before touring to Cambridge (12 to 17 March), Bath (19 to 24 March), Edinburgh (27 to 31 March), Nottingham (10 to 14 April), Birmingham (16 to 21 April), Salford (24 to 28 April), Plymouth (1 to 5 May), Norwich (7 to 12 May), Malvern (15 to 19 May), Guildford (21 to 26 May) and Sheffield (29 May to 2 June).

Casting is yet to be announced.

Graham's latest play Ink just opened at the Almeida starring Bertie Carvel and Richard Coyle, and his new play Labour of Love will feature Martin Freeman and Sarah Lancashire when it opens at the Noel Coward later this year.

This House will open at West Yorkshire Playhouse, Leeds on 22 February 2018 before embarking on a UK tour.
